Invalid JSON. Correction 11/25/2014: The notes previously listed the size of the JSON as a fault of the file because the automated validation tool was limited in the size of the JSON file it could handle. This was a limitation of the validation too, and not of the agency. This note has been deleted.

The discussion of the process is limited; no place on site to submit feedback and no initiative POC named. Very low volume on IdeaScale - would recommend better public engagement mechanisms and work with the DOI social media and other public-facing teams. With the amount of science data within the agency, there could be equivalents to the activities NASA holds.
